The Deer River Area Community Fund presented a $1000 donation to the Deer River High School Music Boosters Fund. This donation will support the Deer River High School music students’ trip to Minneapolis. Gwenn Smith of the Deer River Area Community Fund says, “The Deer River High School music program brings joy to parents and families of the involved students and also brings that appreciation to the whole community. We all needs the arts in our lives, don’t we? Lenora Evans is an amazing teacher!”
